We bring you all the results from this week’s Senior Hurling Championship
What a week. Seems like it flew past. But since Wednesday, the action from the opening round of this year’s Dublin Senior Hurling Championship has been coming think and fast. And with the first rounds in both the Senior A and Senior B all played it’s time to look at the results from both.
Senior A Hurling Championship Round 1
An unreal game this afternoon in Parnell Park to kick off Group 1. With Na Fianna in pole position for the majority of the game, Kilmacud Crokes pulled it out of the bag to tie the fixture and share the points on a 1-16 to 1-16 scoreline. The Mobhi Road boys looked to have it in the bag, but a late injury time goal from Ronan Hayes levelled the sides. Elsewhere in Group 1 Faughs got the upper hand in their opener against O’Tooles at Monastery Road to start their campaign at the top of the group.
Kilmacud Crokes 1-16 Na Fianna 1-16

Judes proved too strong this afternoon for Ballinteer in the opener in O’Toole Park this afternoon. A 0-16 margin at full time was Judes statement of intent for this year competition.
